  •  Those diarists are like tea partiers. (4+ / 0-)

    Every abuse of power is an example of Obama's excess. If some random cop abuses protesters, that's an example of the scary betrayer's increasingly autocratic leadership. The Tea Party do the same thing with Fast and Furious.

    Fear of Obama is an epidemic it seems.

      I hear the voices of the right in my head condemning all government, or at least condemning the current government.

      It is interesting when I see instances like that kid being extrapolated up to the office of the president.  

      I would say that it has more to do with the tendency of police officers to head towards the right wing of the building, and to use selective memory to justify radical positions.

      feelings or criticism of any OWS group or initiative is somehow betraying them.  

      They seem to identify so strongly with THEIR OWS experience, that they forget that OWS is not monolithic, by any standard, or stretch of the imagination.
